"hostile"?  Eh?

Yes, Apache should absolutely follow the RFC, as should browsers.  That's the
only way to get predictable behavior that will benefit both users and authors.

Note that if IE were following the RFC none of this would be a problem, since
authors would quickly notice their servers were sending a type they did not want
and _fix_ it.

We can't do anything about IE, but randomly violating network protocols just
because we find them inconvenient is a BAD idea if you expect any sort of
interoperability.
